Summer Break Programs

Short-term programs - Summer Break (December – February) 

Participating in a Short-term Program during the Summer Break is an exciting opportunity to gain personal, academic and employability skills with a cross-cultural perspective. Check out the variety of program offerings below to find your perfect Short-term Program!

Due to the continuing uncertainty around when international borders will re-open and when it will be safe to resume international travel, the University of Sydney will be supporting:

     • Students intending to participate in virtual mobility options during the 2020-2021 summer break.
     • Students intending to participate in-person mobility options during the 2020-2021 summer break in their country of citizenship/permanent residence, where they are currently residing in that country. 

The University will not be supporting in-person participation in any overseas study programs to a country where the student is not a citizen/permanent resident. 


All applicants participating in a Short-term Program were made aware on the program page that the final date to submit an Academic Approval Request to be guaranteed the return of an Academic Approval Outcome prior to the commencement of the program was 15 November 2020. Academic Approval Requests Portal is now closed for new outcome requests. All active applications are now in system. Students are reminded that they are eligible for the single program of their choice but must seek prior approval to undertake a dual program study.
